    Can anyone help with suggested loads for the 6.5-284 Norma with either

    120 TSX or 130 accubonds?

    The only Barnes data for 120 grain I have is from the Barnes #3 Manual and those loads suppose the use of the "X" or XLC coated bullets only.

    I have both Norma and Lapua brass and Fed 210 Gold Medal primers and pretty well most of the same powders you have in the USA.

    Overall cartridge length is not a problem as both the magazine and throat length will accomodate 142 SMK's seating far out of the case mouth.

    The barrel is a 26" Krieger but top velocity is not the main objective.

    Is there a "sweet spot" for bullet jump for Accubonds. I tend to run TSX in other calibres from .050 -.060 Jump and SMK's round about .010" but have no experience with Accubond?

    Many thanks

    Jonathan

    Hey, I'm looking for the same info and was curious if you ever found a good load. I have little doubt the 140s are better ballistically, but I prefer the 120 grain triple shock for its on game performance. Never been a fan of the bonded 130s, Nosler or Swift.
